Does anyone remember that song from childhood and churchcamp?
"Oh you can't get to heaven, (oh you can't get to heaven)
On roller skates (on roller skates)
Oh you can't get to heaven, (oh you can't get to heaven)
On roller skates
No you can't get to heaven on roller skates, you'll roll right past those pearly gates!
All my sins are washed away, I've been redeemed.
There are many other verses, which can easily be added to. "Can't get to heaven in Kevin's car, cause Kevin's car won't go that far", or "on a pogo stick, cause a pogo stick just ain't that quick"... it goes on and on in silliness, but with the message that only Christ's blood can offer salvation.
Canaan and Zion recently learned the song from Bob and Larry, and the rest of the Veggie Tales crew while being carted back and forth to the grocery, the library, karate practice, etc. We have headphones in the back of the Tahoe, so I can listen to something different while they jam to the Veggies in the back.
When we were home one evening Z was making up verses on his own, just to be silly. Can't get to heaven in a piece of toast, potato chip... random things. He is only four, and doesn't even try to rhyme. He just throws things out there. But Canaan, he takes things so seriously. Zion suggested a basket, laughing as usual, but Canaan thought that might actually work. "If you stayed in that basket too long you would suffocate and die, and then you would go to heaven."
What am I going to do with that boy?
